CURRENT STATE OF GLACIERS IN THE SITARGI RIVER BASIN DURING CLIMATE CHANGE
Scientific Institution “Center for the Study of Glaciers of the National Academy of Sciences of Tajikistan”
Scientific research and conclusions in the glaciers of the Sitargi river basin in the process of global climate change are aimed at identifying cases of changes in the area of glaciers of the Sitargi tributary of the Obikhingob river basin. The process of generalizing changes in the boundaries of the basin’s glaciers in the period from 1977 to 2018 were carried out using images of the Landsat 1-7 and Sentinel 2A satellites and were processed in the ArcGIS and Google Earth programs.
It was revealed that many glaciers in the Sitargi river basin are pulsatiles and during the study period pulsations were observed, which lead to changes in the area of glaciers in this basin.
Key words: glacier, Sitarga river basin, reduction, nutrition, space photography, Obikhingob river.
